Fighting to Win Compensation for Victims of Hernia Surgery Patch Failure
Serious problems with the design and appropriate use of Kugel mesh surgical patches were first widely exposed in late 2005, and the first U.S. lawsuit was filed on behalf of a victim just under a year later. Defendants in ongoing lawsuits include the manufacturer of the Kugel patches, Davol, Inc., a subsidiary of C.R. Bard, Inc.
Today it is widely acknowledged that the patches, provided and used prolifically in hernia surgery, posed significant risks including bowel perforation and chronic intestinal problems. What can never be determined with total certainty is how many people died of complications including septic shock, blood clotting or cardiac arrest suffered during abdominal surgery.
Experienced Florida Attorneys Who Will Thoroughly Research Your Case
Defective hernia surgical patches were not confined to a single product type nor a single manufacturing run or lot number. Indications that you or a loved one may have been a victim — and may now have valid cause for legal action — include diagnosis, some time after hernia surgery or a transvaginal procedure, of severe medical conditions such as bowel perforation, toxic shock or intestinal fistulae.
It is also possible that your loved one's wrongful death was not properly investigated nor attributed to the defective oval and circle patches now known to be extremely dangerous. If at any point a physician referenced terms such as "Bard Composix" or "recoil ring failure," your case certainly warrants consideration.
